The testes were taken out and then withdrawn to place the emulsion in the funiculus spermaticus.
According to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study, high-intensity signal on T2WI is present around the posterior funiculus of the cervical spinal cord [1], gadolinium enhancement and edematous changes in the spinal cord are found in the acute stage, and blood-brain barrier (BBB) breakdown is locally observed [11].
Furthermore, although most T10 injuries crossed the midline, this did not prohibit the analysis of RtST-PrIN plasticity in the spinal tissue between the two SCIs because RtST fibers project in the lateral funiculus of the white matter [19].
In particular, the antennal funiculus seems to be important because it contains many sensory receptors [19].
The spinal cord of the vehicle-treated group contained numerous Iba-1-positive cells particularly in the ventral horn (Figure 5(a)), dorsal horn, and dorsal funiculus (Figure 5(b)) at 7 days after SCI.
These cells present cytoplasm that is intensely stained by safranin, Epidermal cells at the base of the funiculus are enlarged radially forming a projection with 5-6 layers of parenchyma cells (see Figure 4H) which are not glandular in appearance, The integuments are multi-layered and covered by cuticle, The outer integument consists of 2-4 layers of isodiametric cells that are variable in size, while the inner integument is thicker with multiple layers of cells in the micropyle region, The vascular tissue occurs in the outer integument and extends from the chalaza to the inner integument (see Figure 41).
Ultrastructural study on the funicular system of Zoobotryon verticillatum suggests that the rosette cells around the pore act as a valve to control the flow of materials through the funiculus and that the cincture cells are the active component of this valve (Carle and Ruppert, 1983).
2); scape slightly shorter than funicle and at most reaching eye, funiculus with seven segments, antennal club compact and only one segmented (Figs.
Spinal cord injuries containing asymmetrical damage in the yen-trolateral funiculus is associated with a higher incidence of at-level allodynia.
